Beauty by Clinica Ivo Pitanguy


From Beauty by Clinica Ivo Pitanguy

In addition to facials like the Opulent Rejuvenesence Facial at The Spa at Madarin Oriental, NY, I use the most marvelous line of products called Beauty by Clinica Ivo Pitanguy.

This luxurious line bears the name of one of the world’s most esteemed plastic surgeons, Dr Ivo Pitanguy, and was designed at the legendary Clinica Ivo Pitanguy in Rio—an international beauty landmark founded in 1963. The line encapsulates the accumulated knowledge of all the clinic’s specialists—from nutritionists and aestheticians to dermatologists and surgeons—and is enjoyed by some of the world’s most famous faces, including the ageless beauty Carmen Dell’ Orefice.

Now, I am not one who can bear endless applications of this and that—my regimen is actually quite simple. In the morning I use the “Lifting Serum” (see above) which revitalizes, tones, firms and rejuvenates the skin, targeting wrinkles, and I follow it up with the “Face Lifting Formula” (see below) which increases elasticity, firmness, tone and texture; then I apply the “Eye Contour Lifting Gel” which fights fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, bags and shadows.



In the evening I use the “Ultimate Repair Cream” and “Ultimate Eye Cream” that both work to restore a more youthful appearance. (see below)



As I have mentioned, these products have a wonderfully cumulative effect, and it probably goes without saying that I am rather thrilled with the results!

    Thanks for sharing your ritual secrets!
    I remember back in the 1970’s we all used Erno Lazlo products,
    with the black soap…

    Now, I enjoy the OBAGI skin care line, which I get from my plastic surgeon, Dr. Elizabth Fox.

    Dear Dean,

    I have not found a line that works as well as Beauty by Clinica Ivo Pitanguy.

    I need to order the eye cream and the eyecontour lifting gel. Thanks again for making me aware of the Pitanguy products. Luciana Pignatelli would be impressed!

    What is your opinion of clear nail varnish for men?
    (fingers and toes) just curious!


  6. James Andrew says:

    Dean- I tend to not like it on men- I prefer just a more natural look.

    The Japanese P-Shine is better
